WHAT'S NEW?

The core of this site remains the same, but every now and then I keep adding new examples and occasionally new sections. Transcribing the more complex Zappa compositions is much time consuming, so all is deposited at the I-depot, The Hague, and/or included in printed versions to protect my authorship. The 4th edition is downloadable as pdf. The printed versions can be ordered and are included in various libraries worldwide.
